CRITIQUE PAPER (4 double-spaced pages of text) This paper will focus on one artist, selected from your text, World of Art or websites provided by instructor. Research biographical information on this artist and select TWO works for discussion and analysis. Give the name of the artist, the title, date and medium of the works of art you have chosen. Identify the theme. Begin your essay with brief biographical information on your artist. You will then provide detailed visual analysis of two works: you will discuss the style, the subject matter, and interpretations of the art. Remember, you will describe the art thoroughly – how it was made, the materials, the subject matter and content, the interpretation. Your essay must include a paragraph stating the meaning of each work of art and how the artist uses visual elements and design to construct this meaning. Use your critical visual analysis skills: the formal elements of visual design (line, color, light, composition, form). End your essay with a paragraph that discusses your informed response to the work(s). Consider your interests (hobbies, beliefs, career goals) and life experiences that might affect your choice of theme. YOU WILL NEED TO SUBMIT 5” X 7” COLOR PRINTS (COPIES) OF YOUR CHOSEN WORKS. All papers must include images (appended after 4 full pages of text), especially where detailed analysis and important comparisons/contrasts of artworks are presented. Refer to the images as Fig. 1, Fig. 2, etc. (in parentheses) within the body of your text. Images should be sufficiently large (at least a quarter of a page in size) and clear to be useful to the reader. 1 . Your report should be typed, have one-inch margins and numbered pages.

References: Sayre, Henry M. Writing About Art. 6nd ed. Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice Hall, 2006 My comments: I chose the artist William-Adolphe Bougereau, and I picked 2 pieces of art 1- “A young girl defending herself against Eros” 2- “The difficult lesson” my professor comment: Good choice – several options for discussion. See attached for excellent scholarly biography placing this artist in the social context of his times. Bougereau was a very popular academic painter of the 19th c – art historians now view his works within a different social and aesthetic context from the perspective of 20th c and modernity. You might also consider approaching your selected works from a feminist perspective of works created for the male “gaze” as allegorical images and aesthetic objects rather than the pragmatic and realistic women of perhaps a Degas. You will need 6 reference sources, quoted and cited in your text. The images do not count towards your 6 annotated bibliographic references. see attachment for my professor see my first draft
The Artist William-Adolphe Bougereau William-Adolphe Bougereau was a France artist who lived between 1825 and 1905. The work that he did is called, “A young girl defending herself against Eros” which was created in 1880 using oil on canvas. An energetically exposed woman sits with her arms outstretched, pushed a winged child unendingly. He is cupid, the ruler of love holding up an arrow to stab her. The title recommends that the young woman is endeavoring to protect herself, yet she similes and fights unconvincingly against the devious little god. The gem remains fundamental today as it exhibits the necessity for self-conservation. More other work called “The difficult lesson” was created in 1884 using oil painting reproduction on canvas. That art of work is an about photo sensible proliferation of a child involved with a troublesome lesson, her cherubic figures taking after the lines of as she looks towards the watcher. Visitors to the Paris shows of the 1870s and 1880s loved William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s artwork. Moreover, the artist William-Adolphe Bouguereau made this association in his studio, repeating the scene from the neighboring French totally open and using one of his most cherished models.
